Facebook Fake Account Makers Getting Better, Experts Say

Cyber security experts recently warned that creators of fake Facebook profiles are getting better at concealing their footprints. They added that this could pose a new challenge to the social network which is already struggling to prevent misinformation on the platform.

Ben Nimmo of Digital Forensic Research Lab says that the new fake profiles feature less original written material, and use copy-pasted material from American websites for longer posts.

Meanwhile, director of the Oxford Internet Institute Philip Howard says that the fake accounts now tend to share more diverse and less discernible material with better quality images from lesser known sites.
